    Default doubt with a sentence

    Hi there,

    I'm not sure if this sentence is right. In Portuguese the expression 'already knowing' is very common e grammatically correct. Is it the same in English?

    - I'd like to go there already knowing what I'm going to face.

    Thank you.

    Default Re: doubt with a sentence

    Hi,

    To me "knowing beforehand" or "knowing in advance" or (maybe) even simply "knowing" sound better.

    greetings,

    It's fine.

    A better title for your thread would have been Already knowing?
